The Trip Timeline feature increases the functionality of camera images from trips and offers you a single interface to view trip stills, videos, and take action. This feature is accessible through the Dash Cam Report, the Cameras Page, or Visual Review.
What'll Appear On This Page
Trip stills uploaded every 5m from every camera associated with a given vehicle
All video retrievals (demarcated with a blue bar under the image on the Trip Timeline at the top of the page)
All harsh events (demarcated with a red bar under the image)
All trip metadata, including trip beginning and endpoint, map, assigned driver, and vehicle ID.
Between Trip Images
Pressing the “left” or “right” arrows at the top center of the page lets the user quickly scroll through trip images in order. The keyboard's arrow keys do the same thing, as does the left-right scroll function on a trackpad or mouse.
The arrow keys above the map allow the user to scroll quickly to the previous or subsequent trip. The “←" in the upper left will return the user to the prior screen (typically the Video Library or Camera Trip Overview page)
In response to customer requests for more interactivity with dashcam stills and retrieved video, the trip timeline relies on the new Safety Theatre component to display camera stills. Similar to the functionality of the Safety Theatre in the Event Review page, users will be able to toggle between different layouts in order to zoom in on single images or videos, or to see multiple images and videos (like from a multi-cam system) in one view.
Safety events that occur on a given trip will also appear on the Trip Timeline, indicated by a red dash under the associated trip still. Clicking on that still will open the video clip associated with that event. Users will have the ability to download event footage from this view, but will not have the ability to initiate the coaching workflow from this page. Users will need to enter the Safety Inbox to initiate coaching on harsh events.
Video retrievals will also appear on this page, whether retrieved from a trip or from a time when the camera was recording but the vehicle was not on a trip. Videos will appear on the Trip Timeline with a grey dash underneath the associated still.
New to this page is the ability to initiate video retrievals directly from the trip image. Clicking on “Retrieve Video” will open the Video Retrieval modal with the associated vehicle and time pre-selected. Once the video retrieval is complete, it will appear in the Timeline at the top of the page.
The Trip Timeline integrates all cameras on a vehicle into a single view. For vehicles equipped with multi-cam hardware, trip stills will appear from all additional cameras at the same 5m interval.
Clicking into a multi-cam still or video will also bring up a number of options unique to multi-cam, including the ability to rotate the orientation of the image and give individual cameras a name. Simply click on the pencil icon next to the camera name (a new or unnamed camera will show a default 4-digit number) to open the editing modal.
